As the grandson of real farmers and the son of a butcher, meat preparation is in my blood. As a child, my favourite dish was Flemish meatballs – and it still is to this day.

Through catering at top events all over the world, I discovered the secrets of cuisine and the concept of ‘handcrafted food’, which is clearly appreciated across the globe.

The result is Balls & Glory, a range of handcrafted meatballs, filled with things we love. In other words, a real Flemish meatball, filled with our favourite ingredients. A perfect mix of delicious, artisan mince and innovative, juicy fillings with a modern touch, and of course, with the essential dose of glory.
